Yeah, so I dont play many games on NA, a few games ago I had a game with 8 players a side, 3 subs + CV Posted it, Ashkance out it down to queue dump.

And here we go again. really enjoy being outspotted by a CV and hunted by subs in a DD. Spent the entire game trying to break detection. Absoutly no chance to actually help the team. Oh and I nearly forgot about the ISE also heping to perma spot.

Queue dump or no queue dump, 3 subs a side + a CV is just unplayable.  Im rapidly losing interest in this game

I dont play many games on NA, happened to me twice in maybe 10 games on this server. Maybe Im just really unlucky

But to me the fact that its allowed to happen at all is the issue.CVs have a  MM limit per side, why not limit subs to 2.

And if the queue length is too long for subs as a result, well too bad. Spotting is a huge part of this game, is it acceptable to bolocks up the spotting balance in a game with 3 subs, and  potentially 2 CVs.

For us, our peak time for NA is obviously low server population, it is more likely to see queue dumps. On NA during their peak time I've not really seen any dodgy MM stuff.

Beats the alternative though.

I have played Subs, and I dont find myself in a double sub game often.

I have never seen a 3 sub game.

I usually find myself as a single sub and CV a bit more often.

I also play during the NA prime (afternoon to roughly midnight) time during the week. The only time the teams get really wonky is during the off periods, which for NA is early morning to maybe just after noon.

At what percentage of games would you consider it as often? or not very often?

More than 1 in 4.

At the moment it's 0 from however many I've played on NA since subs were inflicted on us.

Subs are game breaking and WG will do nothing about it.

IMHO the most OP class of ship ever to added to the game.

Eight players? Looks like a full house to me.

Yeah 4 DDs, 2 Subs and a CV = not a whole lot to shot at as a BB.

This. The Asia server is where I usually hang out, being based in NZ its a coin flip as to where the ping is worse. Def fewer subs on Asia server. I've been a DD main for a long time, but DDs are just getting pummeled rightnow Im thinking of switching ot CAs. And then getting smacked by all the 18 inch plus fantasy guns ;).

Well, there's no  team damage anymore, so you could always just shoot your team's CV while waiting 5 minutes for a target of opportunity ;)

Shooting any CV (allied or enemy) is a righteous action! :-)
